"All the features of Apache Kafka are valuable, I cannot single out one feature."
"Kafka is an open-source tool that's easy to use in our country, and the command line interface is powerful."
"It is a useful way to maintain messages and to manage offset from our consumers."
"The most valuable feature of Apache Kafka is the clustering which is very easy to scale and we have multiple servers all over our platforms. It has been useful for stability and performance."
"valuable features relate to microservices architecture and working on KStream and KSQL DB as a microservices event bus."
"Robust and delivers messages quickly."
"It is the performance that is really meaningful."
"The high availability is valuable. It is robust, and we can rely on it for a huge amount of data."
"JBoss is easy to use, and we have a good partner here in Tunisia to provide local support."
"The graphical user environment is currently lacking."
"The price for the enterprise version is quite high. It would be better to have a lower price."
"The repository isn't working very well. It's not user friendly."
"The initial setup and deployment could be less complex."
"I would like to see an improvement in authentication management."
"Pulsar gives more scalability to an even grouping, but Apache Kafka is used more if you want to send something in a time series-based. If this does not matter to you then Pulsar could be more customizable. Apache Kafka is nothing but a streaming system with local storage."
"More Windows support, I believe, is one area where it can improve."
"Lacks elasticity and the ability to scale down."
"JBoss could add more automation."
